The Joan Hajducsek Rosen Arts Advocacy Scholarship was established in
2011 by the staff of the Music and Art Department of the Bayonne Public
Schools in honor of Mrs. Rosen’s retirement from her position as
Department Director after over four decades of work with the Bayonne
Public Schools. The intent of the scholarship is to celebrate the value of
arts education for all students – a cause that Mrs. Rosen had supported
throughout her tenure, and continues to do so advocating for excellence
in the arts on the local, state, county ad national levels. The scholarship
application is open to any graduating Bayonne High School senior who
demonstrates that same passion for the arts through a 350 word essay:
Explain how the arts impacted on your learning experiences at Bayonne High School.
Scholarship applications must be received no later than May 1, 2017.
All applications are to be sent to:
Mrs. Madeline Temchin
Bayonne High School, House 2
667 Avenue A
Bayonne, NJ 07002
Past recipients of the scholarship have been Rebecca Poggialli, Samantha
Hitchell, Melissa Ann Travelino, Corryn DeFazio, Vincent Neill, Robert Puchinsky,
Emma Masserelli, Olivia Boules and Tatiana Rodas.
The scholarship is financed through donations; in addition
the Rosen family is committed to matching every dollar that is donated.
The scholarship committee is currently accepting those donations.
Please send them to:
Mrs. Linda Carroll
Bayonne Board of Education
Community Education Department
669 Avenue A
Bayonne, New Jersey 07002
Checks should be made out to the Bayonne High School Fund with the
Joan H. Rosen Arts Advocacy Scholarship in the memo line.
The committee selection will be announced during the Bayonne High
School Awards Ceremony, June 7, 2017, 6:30 p.m. in the Alexander X. O’Connor
Auditorium of Bayonne High School.
